— A memorial fund has been established to help defray costs associated with funeral arrangements for Harmony Creech, whose body was discovered after she had been reported missing last week.

Contributions can be made to the "Harmony Jade Creech Memorial Fund," c/o First Citizens Bank, P.O. Box 70030, Fort Bragg, N.C. 28307-0030.

Contributions are also being accepted at any First Citizens Bank branch office. Checks should be made payable to the "Harmony Jade Creech Memorial Fund."

Investigators found the 11-month-old's skeletal remains inside a diaper box in the attic of her mother's Spring Lake home early Saturday afternoon.

The mother, Michelle Heuser, 25, is charged with first-degree murder in the case.

Harmony's father, Sgt. Ronald Creech, had returned from a 15-month deployment in Iraq hours before Heuser's mother reported the child missing.
